Great resto project with this genuine unrestored 1973 HQ GTS Monaro in Orchid metallic running the original matching numbers L31 5.0 L V8, 4 speed manual M21 gearbox and 10 bolt Salisbury 3.08 LSD. Mechanically the car is excellent and could be registered and driven as is with some minor body work or go the whole hog and restore this rare car.
The car runs and drives but obviously needs some body work and then a repaint in the spectacular HQ GTS Monaro colour of Orchid Metallic.The car still has its original GTS front guards and all correct chrome comes with the car including good straight bumper bars.
The interior still features the original black trim in need of resto work with working gauges, original carpet, good hood lining and manual steering. Showing 61,564 miles on the clock. A radio is fitted but it is not an original HQ radio.
Rust is limited to the bottom of the rear quarter and above the rear wheel arch and some on the rear RHS dog leg, Otherwise the car is solid.
Sitting on 5 genuine GTS rims, this HQ GTS would make a very rewarding resto project with the end result being a very rare matching numbers and rare coloured HQ GTS. Mornington Peninsula, VIC car. (Ref: 5380)
